it already is. but house speaker john boehner is warning about it. he insists now that president obama has adopted a scorched earth policy toward republicans. chief white house correspondent ed henry has the specifics. >> congratulations. godspeed. [ applause ] >> within 24 hours of the traditional inaugural lunchen, speaker john boehner was singing another tune about president obama's intentions. >> so we are expecting here over the next 22 months, to be the focus of this administration. as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us in to the history. >> today, white house spokesman jay carney rejected that charge, saying you heard them say in the inaugural address, even though we have profound differences it's imperative we come together. in the inaugural address, though, the president also took this shot at republicans. >> we cannot mistake absolutism for principle. or substitute spectacle for politics. or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. >> in the public believes since the re-election, the president
, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker boehner says he won't negotiate with him and president obama seemed implacable on his positions. >> back to me, i think there is going to have to be a shift in how obama handles the hill. you know, when presidents win re-election, the air on top of mt. olympus is scbfl feels great. but it's very thin and it leads to you do things that can appear arrogant. that affects your approval rating and then your agenda can't get through. that's what has happened in second terms with presidents in america. unless obama can show the american people, on the big issues, like the budget and immigration and what he is talking about with guns, he can work with the republicans. let me ask you a question, can you name the one bipartisan accomplishment of president obama? >> yeah, it's called getting re-elected. >> okay! the fact is, if you look at where the country is today, the clear majority of americans, larger percentage of americans voted for obama than past presidents. but in terms of policy, i am not going to say it
journal" poll. the only thing that is worse is john boehner. 18% favorable. this is not a formidable partner. >> over the weekend, "politico" spoke to many advisers and said house republicans and party leaders appear willing to shut down government. we might need to do that four- member management purposes so that they can have an end game and show their constituents they are fighting. get it out of the system? this is not a gastrointestinal problem, this is the government. >> i would suggest therapy and do not shed down the government. i would give it to them for free. the republicans have had a pretty unhappy experience with brinksmanship. years theye gingrich shut down the government and they got shellacked. they tried to force the issue using the debt ceiling in 2011, using the fiscal cliff in january. i am as gung-ho as any of them to force obama into cutting spending. but it failed, and the reason is, you cannot govern from one house of the congress. that is the truth. i wrote a column this morning saying essentially, you have to recognize, you cannot use these things come up a
of stuff that people can come after you with. kind of the backdrop here is that house speaker john boehner has had some hiccups or headaches lately. it started late last year when house republicans struggled over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him
republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as he begins the second term. if you ask john boehner or mitch mcconnell, they believe the size of government, debt and deficit is is the biggest issues. and if you listen to the speech yesterday, he made only passing references to that. talk of immigration reform, many republicans including the speaker want to work with the president on that but if he talks a lot publicly, it puts pressure on the conservative base which any legal status is amnesty. the president also talking about gun control and gun rights, just talked to tom fuentes, it stretches the political coalition. the things that the president highlighted and spend more time on his inaugur
. here is how speaker john boehner summed it up today. >> you know, the premise here is pretty simple. it says that there should be no long-term increase in the debt limit until there is a long-term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> and now the democrat-controlled senate hasn't really passed a budget resolution during the obama administration ever. but even before the house approved the new -- no budget, no pay measure. harry reid said he would bring it up and intends to pass it it watch. >> but to spare the middle class another knockdown, drag out fight we're going to proceed to work on this legislation and get it out of here as quickly as we can. >> i also want to give credit where credit is due. and i thank speaker boehner for his leadership in diffusing a fight over the debt ceiling debate. >> 86 house democrats went along with boehner in the bill. 33 republicans opposed it as insufficiently conservative, shep? >> shepard: this doesn't stop the fight though, carl. it just puts it off for a while, right? >> yeah, in the short-term it did i investigators
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
we offered speaker boehner. it is public. $400 billion in health care savings we offered, and $200 billion of additional cuts in domestic spending and a trillion dollars in savings and look at where we started the negotiated process and the speaker, we went more than halfway. >> chris: is the president still willing to adjust the cost of living increase for entitlements, is he still willing to raise the eligibility age for medicare? are those still on the table? >> i will not talk about specifics that may be in the package. it is will report in the discussions with speaker boehner we were willing to entertain the cost of living adjustment. but, the overall package, we put over a trillion dollars including the proposal on cpi. over a trillion dollars, in spending cuts. now, some of the republicans say they don't want revenue. speaker boehner himself said there was $800 million of revenue, simply from closing corporate loopholes an loopholes for the wealthy. surely there is additional revenue we can get from closing loopholes, not rates, that was done -- dealt with at the end of the
. on the house floor today, speaker john boehner called the republican bill, "pretty simple." >> it says there should be no long term increase in the debt limit until there's a long term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> ifill: today, the house opted for short term, temporarily lifting the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144,
thought that he had settled the issue, and speaker boehner too, with allowing higher rates and some other changes to limit some reductions, to bring in more revenue. they thought, okay, that piece is complete. well, now democrats are looking at putting a budget together that they haven't formally done, but said revenue will be in it. so that will be a huge fight. i think one of the hard parts tc and we struggle with it as journalists, the ideas are complex. the fact that it leads us into the future, it's so hard for any of us to see that crystal ball and know. so the deadlines have become the way they operate. needing short-term, immediate deadlines to force people to act. and that is exhausting for the public as well as the hill and it's not always that effective. >> and it will continue. and we have a lot more to come with our power panel. but we want to go to trivia time. who is the only treasury secretary to serve under three presidents? the answer -- andrew mellon. he was appointed by warren g. harding in 1921 and suddened to serve under calvin coolidge and herbert hoover. a lot of f
default. john boehner said to show the american people that it would move to balance the budget. >> they understand you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. we're committed to doing a budget on the house side. a budget that will balance over the next ten years. it's time for the senate and the president to show the american people how they're willing to balance a budget over the next ten years. >> the bill now goes to the senate where it's expected to pass and be approved by the white house. republicans will continue to push the government to review social security spending. the bill urges congress to compile an outline of the 2014 budget by mid-april. more business headlin next heres another checon maets. >>> u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton has suggested islamist militants may be behind separate attacks in north africa. she talked about the hostage taking last week of workers at a gas plant in algeria. clinton said algerian government officials have told their counterparts in washington that some of the islamist militants may have been involved in another
president obama has been reluctant to join in that junk without knowing that in fact speaker boehner republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell would be able to join hands with him as he takes the lead. let me say i think that entitlement spending that republicans house what they ais a is three months they will allow the debt ceiling to be hiked and try to attach some spending cuts or at least say we need to be engaged in negotiations for further increase in debt hike. i think that was a recession for republicans in reality they were losing this argue uchlt. it reengineers to the point that 60 percent of americans think you have to have spending cuts right now. >> you listen to the president's senior advisor today he was talking again about a balanced approach saying whatever deal on the debt ceiling has to have tax loopholes closed. speaker boehner brought the 800 billion in loop whole closures in the beginning of the fiscal cliff negotiation that should be a part of this deal. despite the fact that the president wanted rate increase on the fiscal deal and that's all they want.
into president obama's second term speaker of the house john boehner says he beliefs the president wants to destroy the republican party making it easier for the white house to push through the agenda of democrats. have a listen here. >> so we're expecting mere over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt too annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dustbin of history. bill: that's not, not just some guy talking. that is the speaker of the house. monica crowley, radio talk show host, fox news contributor. good morning, monica. emily sussman, president of young democrats for america. how are you doing today. >> very well. thank you. bill: let's go at it. what do you make of the speaker's comments of nile ages? >> just dawning on john boehner and republican leadership this is the president's goal no wonder the republicans had a tough time of it recently. of course this is the president's goal. it has been his goal since day one. there is nothing in the president's history or backg
at that throughout the last four years of president obama's term. remember now john boehner and president obama had a deal the first time, the first time with a the debt ceiling 600 billion dollar number they came to and agreed to john boehner went over to the white house and ready to sign the deal and president obama said, no, make it 800, and moved the goal post and the mouse democrats say we'll punt this, kick the can down the road until april, the debt ceiling, let you raise the debt ceiling and violate the things we promised we wouldn't do to the people that elected us. in return, you guys, senate democrats come up with a budget and you haven't passed one in 1300 some days. chuck schumer says i'll make a deal and take you up on the offer guess what, in the new budget we're going to tax more, tax all you people to agreed to the deal that they just came to january 1st, that deal is done we'll keep that and give another, another bite of at that apple. stuart: this is a financial issue. it's a budget issue, so they need a straight up or down vote in the senate and the democrats have a majority in
and the jeers that minority leader speaker john boehner received along with a couple of other leaders, republican leaders in the house. it was out of place for this kind of a feelgood event, but, nonetheless, you could see the politics even on a day like today. you could see the politics never too far from where everybody else was. >> it seemed president obama spoke with a little more of a swagger than he usually does, and that's because he doesn't have to worry about re-election anymore? >> reporter: it's because he doesn't have to worry about re-elected. it's because he feels he's won the last two or three fights, and he has. including the raising of the income taxes and, of course, the delaying of the debt, another three months before they have to vote on that again, so he's feeling pretty good. he feels he has the republicans on a limb. i think you're right. he did speak with a little bit more of an attitude, if you will, today. not too much but a little bit more. he's trying to tell people, look, we're going to get out there and pound the pavement on what we think is important an
completed an evaluation of that same keystone pipeline. john boehner had this to say about it. he said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay this project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. i mean, that's putting it right on the president. >> here is the reality about the keystone pipeline that comes from canada to the united states to deliver oil. that oil is going to somewhere no matter what. this is becoming an ideological touchstone in washington but it doesn't mean a whole lot. that oil will find its way to china, the united states, to europe, wherever it's needed whether the pipeline comes to the united states or it goes across canada and off the coast of vancouver british columbia. this dc fight has very little meaning in the larger picture. >> michael: but those dc fights change the way we talk about it. >> they do. >> michael: it will be the centerpiece for however long for a moment or months of conversatio
obama, speaker boehner? guest: mitch mcconnell, joe biden. michelle obama is rolling her eyes or making a fence at the inaugural luncheon yesterday when obama and boehner talked behind her. lost betweenlove the two. now at this point you have but the president and boehner committing not to talk to each other about the next big spending fight. not a good sign. host: what will second obama term mean for the court? guest: a lot of big issues, and i suppose there is the possibility of another supreme court appointment, which is always a moment to read-tod litigate social issues. we will look at potentially historic rulings on affirmative action, economic issues, gay marriage, and if he goes ahead on climate change, i do not know if it will get the court, but that will be with just in extreme. i think this -- despite the fact that the president and chief justice managed twice to get through the oath of office without any mistakes of the last couple of days, you are still going to see a huge gulf between the conservative majority of the supreme court and this white house, particularly under t
sources? >> steve: okay, fine. >> brian: house speaker john boehner looking towards the president's second term and warning republicans about what he sees coming. listen. >> we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to anilate the republican party. >> brian: as recommended by a cbs political director. is this unfortunately true and should americans expect more from both parties? fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. is here. is this unprecedented? does every party want to beat the other party to this degree? >> i think there is a visceral, intense dislike coming out of the white house for the republican party that's not unprecedented, but we probably haven't seen such an oppositional party dislike since the waning days of the nixon administration. there is something nixonian about it. i think what john boehner is saying is this is a call to action. this is a wake up call. this is almost a pull revere call saying, we're going to have issues going forward in the next 22 months and we've got to get the folks who are interested in the re
exchanges. speaker of the house john boehner presented flags to the first family and appealed for renewed political cooperation. >> we gather in the old hall to better hear one another >> ifill: moments later president obama echoed that appeal for cooperation >> i recognize that democracy is not always easy. and i recognize there are profound differences in this room. but i just want to say thank you for your service and i want to thank your families for their service because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives i know that all of us serve because we believe that we can make america for future generations. and i'm confident that we can act at this moment in a way that makes a difference. >> ifill: and before they left the building, the group paused to look at the bus bust of dr. martin luther king, jr. that sits under the capital rotunda. then back into the cold for a military review on the steps of the capitol. and the slow drive down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. the one-mile parade route was packed with waving and cheering onlookers, some of them peering d
? >> did you know? what's your over and under on that? >> i think it will probably pass unless boehner is going to get badly humiliated again. i was shocked by what they did. in the textbook of what they're doing, they are not lifting the debt ceiling. they are putting into the bill that instead of lifting the debt ceiling, we are suspending it, so we are saying that for this period of three months the debt ceiling gets no higher, it just does not apply. it has magically vanished. we live in a sane political world in which we no longer have a debt ceiling. in addition to basically saying we don't have enough sort of leverage on this to fight on it, they have also set the precedent of you know what we can do, make the debt ceiling disappear, and then nobody has to vote on raising it. i think they should do that for a little bit longer. like forever. >> it is smoke and mirrors. i really don't think the world republican necessarily applies to many of the members in the house republican caucus. unfortunately, we have to leave it there. thank you, my friend, for your time, and infinite wisd
in that meeting house speaker john boehner announced that house budget chairman paul ryan, the former vice presidential candidate is working on a plan to balance the budget in less than 10 years. that gives some reassurance to conservatives who are anxious about voting to authorize more debt, shep. >> shepard: democrats, mike, said they wanted a longer extension. what's the word from them on this proposal? >> well, the senate majority leader harry reid didn't fully embrace the house plan. he also didn't say no either. but over at the white house, well, they are saying the president would sign it. >> the bill still has to overcome some concerns expressed by members of the house and the senate before it can pass both chambers and reach the president's desk. if it does, and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. >> if the president is not going to block it that would seem to add pressure on senator reid to take it up and act on it and that may force a budget to get done before long. shep? >> shepard: see what happens. mike emanuel on capitol h
is what speaker of the house john boehner had to say about that inauguration speech. >> so we're expecting here over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dust bin of history. >> sean: and joining me now to try and defend his old boss, president obama former economic advisor austan goolsbee. you were hanging out with them. yes. >> sean: did my name come up. >> only the best way possible. >> sean: and tiger woods, i left california years ago. >> california? and phil mickleson after state, local federal taxes 63 cents of every dollar goes to the dollar. wait a minute, i didn't ask the question. >> well, that wasn't the actual true fact, the accountant came back and said it wasn't. >> sean: i'll break it down. let's break it down 40% national tax, 13 1/2, that's 53 1/2, hang on. 4% obamacare tax, 57 1/2, and then fica tax, social security, and then we have local tax and then we have sales tax and property tax. >> and many of those you
: at the luncheon which followed a more bipartisan tone. speaker of the house john boehner presented the president with a gift and good wish. >> in the spirit of harmony i'm proud to present the flag that flew over this battalion of democracy today to president barack obama and vice president joe biden, and to you gentlemen i say, congratulations, and godspeed. >> reporter: the most poignant picture of the day was this the president going inside from the west front of the capitol, pausing and turning for one last look down the vast expanse of the national mall. another thing he thought he might not see, some daylight on the debt limit fight. republicans said monday they would vote tomorrow to raise the debt limit for three months that delays at least for a while another showdown on the debt which could result in closing down the government. and in just three weeks we get the second act of the president's inaugural address, his state of the union speech. there he will lay out more specifics and washington will be waiting to see if the confrontation continues. norah, charlie?

under the so-called boehner rule where they were going to require a measure of deficit reduction, a spending cut for every dollar that they increase the debt limit. they have at least postponed that for four months, giving the president the debt ceiling increase that he wanted till may. the house passed the measure by 285-144 vote and it's a bipartisan showing on an initiative brought fourth by the republicans to control that chamber, days after president obama gave an inaugural speech at that seemed to carry some pointed attacks directored at the republican party. here are excerpts of that. >> we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. we do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky. or happiness for the few. the commitments we made to each other, through medicare, medicaid and social security. these things do not sap our initiative. they strengthen us.
